Beltran hands down. Sheffeild only has 15 SB. I guess you could also argue that Nomar has been a great 5 tool player.

Traditionally, the term "five tool player" has meant a player that:

1) hits for average
2) hits for power
3) runs well
4) throws well
5) fields well

Now these terms are quite vague but I guess the best this year are probably :

Beltran
Soriano
Sheffield
A-Rod
Abreu

Nomar also should be on that list because right now he is hitting .326-21-87 with 15 steals.

Using those criteria, the best overall is without a doubt Beltran.

If your definition of 5-tool player includes hitting for average and fielding well then how the hell does Soriano get even anywhere near your top 5 list of all players? He's hitting only .277 and even worse is one of the poorest fielding second basemen in the majors, fielding only better than Marlon Anderson and Eric Young.

beltran and soriano are the only ones over 20/20 right now.. i think beltran has a higher BA than soriano, more RBIs, although fewer home runs...


go carlos beltran. i traded raul ibanez and kelvim escobar and pat burrell for him while he was injured, and so far that hsa a) covered by ass, steals-wise, from that bonds for vlad trade i made and b) been the steal of the year.

well it's a knock on sheff, as he's probably the best all-around-hitter out of the 5 toolers we're talking about, especially this season,b ut he just doesn't have the stolen base prowess to unseat someone like beltran who's currently doubled sheff's production =D

for added fun: where's beltran playing next year? =D
